HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg woman is Mississippi's Business Woman of the Year. Rosi Johnson of Mississippi Music was selected for the honor.

Johnson is the President and CEO of Mississippi Music. She began working at the company as a recent college graduate in the seventies and moved her way up the ranks.

Johnson was awarded for her accomplishments earlier this month at a luncheon in Jackson where she was chosen from a group of fifty accomplished women as the state's Business Woman of the Year from the Mississippi Business Journal.

Rosi Johnson credits her late father in law, Jim Johnson, for her success. Jim Johnson founded Mississippi Music in 1946 and later hired Rosi Johnson.

"Because I do truly believe, there are lots of other people out there that have helped me along the way, but he started the trust in me and I don't think I would be here today without him," said Johnson.

Johnson advises young women to not be afraid to succeed in business and to trust those who have confidence in their abilities.
